The mission of Athenaeum Review is to help make interesting and important ideas in the humanities freely available to the general educated public, and to promote thoughtful, in-depth criticism of the arts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Our first issue includes an introduction to the Athenaeum and an essay on the Wilcox Space, both by Rick Brettell, as well as reviews of “First Sculpture” at the Nasher by Paul Galvez, and of two books on bioaesthetics by Charissa Terranova. Among much else, there are also essays on Frankenstein at 200, democracy promotion, culinary history, David Hume and Adam Smith, African performance, and science fiction, as well as lists of the best books on British Romanticism, Athenian democracy and Joseph Conrad.

On the Athenaeum Review website, you will find a series of extended illustrated interviews with artists about their work, including Lorraine Tady, Angela Kallus, Bryan Florentin, Liz Trosper and Luke Harnden, all of whose work is published in the first print issue. There is also a selectively curated weekly calendar of important local lectures, performances and exhibitions.

The Athenaeum Review podcast features conversations with scholars and artists about their work, including recent EODIAH fellows and guests Abigail Solomon-Godeau, Yve-Alain Bois, Suzanne Preston Blier, Michael Lobel, and Annabel Daou.

The front cover of Issue 1 illustrates Lorraine Tady’s Octagon Vibration Series/Event Horizon after Monks Mound Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, IL, 2017.
